The inkspots of San Buenaventura are a group of artists dedicated to creating original prints using
a variety of techniques including etching, collagraph, linocut, monoprint, monotype, woodblock,
and digital manipulation.

Furmanski, Rosemarie C. Gebhart, Judy Gibbs, Bay Howell, Tiger Huang, Colleen M. Kelly,
Sandra McCullough, Inés Monguió, Leslie Plimpton and Monica Wiesblott. Their individual
styles are as unique as the artists themselves.
These artists hail from Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, and Santa Barbara—with some members
participating in additional organizations such as the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, the
California Society of Printmakers, and the Santa Barbara Printmakers.
The inkspots present their annual group exhibition at 643 Project Space each November. In
